Venice and its beach have long been a playground for the rich, the famous and the tourists who go there hoping to rub elbows with them while out shopping or when cozying up at the bar of a popular drinking hole. Stars such as Julia Roberts, Kate Beckinsale and Anjelica Huston have called it home. It has its canals lined with swanky residences and the walking streets full of character and upscale homes, eateries and designer shops. But it also has the beach boardwalk where lovers of funk and bohemian vibes can also get their fill of fun. It’s the perfect place for a hideaway or full-time residence for those who seek both worlds at their fingertips.
In 2015, Jonathan King purchased two next-door properties on the popular walk-street, Marco Place. He proceeded to turn them into one fabulous home with a strong focus on privacy. Over the next five years, his efforts turned into a four-bedroom contemporary home and a detached two-story building with a guest suite and balcony upstairs and a pool house on the ground floor. In addition to the formal rooms, kitchen and a highly functional butler’s pantry with every conceivable amenity, the home also has an office with a convenient outside entry, ensuring that business can be conducted without access to the private quarters.
With 3,900 square feet of total living space, the main house contains three bedrooms and two baths and an expansive master suite upstairs with wraparound balcony. The ground level is designed with an open floor plan with a cocktail bar, chef’s kitchen and a bar-style island. The outdoor entertaining area is expansive with an outdoor kitchen and multiple dining venues with pool, spa and privacy. Geared for the California lifestyle, it also has a fire feature, built-in heat lamps and the pool has a 30-foot mosaic mural in blue tiles that depict a breaking wave. The home includes under-floor heating, solar power, and a gated two-car garage.
The property is listed with Suzanne Costello and Jennifer Hughes at Bulldog Realtors, Venice, CA.
